Maybe this has been all part of Netflix master plan. Pay for "direct" connections with the big ISPs to fix the "congestion" problem that's totally not a result of throttling, and then Netflix busts out with proof the ISPs were throttling them and sues the crap out of them, and um free netflix and ISPs for everyone....yeah...


Seriously though this is really sad and a terrible precedent for all content providers and a double fucking for consumers. It won't be long till services like netflix are as terrible and overpriced as cable.

There's nothing good for consumers in mega-mergers. And this won't be the exception. Articles like the one linked are just the lube.

Yeah, because less competition always leads to better prices and service for consumers. What is that bitch smoking? Rolleyes

Guess what Verizon, you ain't gonna get squat. And if you do, I'm gonna start a VPN service and make millions... : )

If Comcast got it Verizon will, too. And the only thing stopping you from "mak[ing] millions" is that Verizon hasn't gotten you angry enough yet?
